Hello all,

I have had a molar that has cracked and cannot be repaired so will need to be extracted. I would hope to have an implant when it has had time to heal. My dentist has quoted me £2,500 (on the basis that he thinks my bones density should be fine and there should be no issues).

I just wanted to ask of:
a) Does the price sound reasonable?
b) Should I shop around?

I have no experience of this so any help/advice I’d be grateful for.

Thank you!

Price sounds fine. I'm assuming this is the implant, abutment, and crown in total? Make sure you get a big brand that has a proven track record and will be around for a long time to come, and ask for genuine parts all the way through - they should be able to provide you with barcoded labels. The 5 biggest names in the industry are listed here. I personally use Straumann and most dentists often have 1 or 2 systems they might use. You need to keep these records somewhere safe in case you ever need repair work.

dont do the implant you dont need it
We don't even know exactly which tooth it is!? If it was a 1st molar I would advise an implant because the lack of a 1st molar can lead to further issues.
